Double Garter Triangular Shawl
The beautiful color patterns on this reversible shawl are achieved by working with four colors in two-strand pairs and using the “double point sliding technique” with alternating strands, knit every row. Because of the double garter stitches, the shawl has a very fluffy feeling, a perfect complement to the subtle color changes. The shawl is knitted from tip up, with increases on one side and straight knitting on another side, until desired size. The double point sliding technique is so called because you slide sts to the opposite end of your dpn or circular needle.
Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.
Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience.
Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
